by supervisor ferrel, president chiu. >> thank you colleagues. like supervisor wiener we all have sympathy for the appellant. this is challenging and something we've all thought about. that being said, i want to reiterate what the secretary of standard for this appeal is we can consider a fee waiver if it's not going to affect the impact of the development and the fee charges. in other words if we were to find an instance in this situation which is the first of four appeals that are coming down the pike on this issue, that there is not a relationship or nexus, i think we are setting ourselves up for a very challenging standard in the future. that i'm concerned could undermine the entire program that we had legislated some months go. as the deputy city attorney indicated we can't just wave this on hardship. because of that, i unfortunately will not be supporting supervisor wiener's motion for that reason. i do hope there are other ways for us to address this. i know supervisor avalos and kimberly asked if there was other ways to assist this $8,000 fee on a $1.8 million property which is ow

, the resolution before us addresses the need for transparency. i want to thank supervisor chiu and supervisor chiu. at the it's important apparent than ever lack ever transparency let's people know where they can get health care for. when people need medication and so forth people are paying higher insurance and co-pay and premiums. we have why'd what we're paying for were one of the charters she's that prices have grown a dozen eggs would cost via dollars and a cartoon of erroneously would cost a lot. if trends continue the i've never seen out-of-pocket will average 50 percent of payrolls. so for all the money wore paying we're not getting healthier. as a member of the height services board i have come to realize how health care is. the resolution before you asks the board of supervisors to establish full and cost transparency in the publics interest. i'll tell you my colleagues, we have drafts from the city attorney's office. and prices transparency in the health care market is essential to encourage consolidations for the quality of care. recently the increases traentd health for san franciscan
level. supervisor chiu has long been interested in these issues. he carried a urban agricultural legislation in 2011 and looks forward to carrying further ag legislation when additional state law changes in the near future. the legislation also makes two changes related to accessory uses more generally. accessory uses essentially -- the secondary use, aside from whatever the primary and essential use of a particular site s in a residential situation, the accessory use in this instance would be cottage food. the other two general accessory use changes are extending the floor area allowed from quarter to a third. this is planning department's estimation of what is a more reasonable amount. particularly with cottage food, there was consideration of exempting the kitchen or having half the kitchen count. instead to make it cleaner and easier to enforce they're going with this recommendation of a third, a third of the square footage. and additionally right now, accessory use [speaker not understood] only apply in certain zoning districts. not including, for example, pdr and the planni
chiu to allow the food to increase it from one quarter to 1/3rd of the unit. and the controls for the zoning district. the purpose of the proposed ordinance is to bring it into state law. it passed the cottage food act when regulates the home kitchens for food for sale. it became mandated and says a city can't prohibit food operations. it gave him the city 3 options. including the classifying the cf those with reasonable standards and to review the permits. the department believes this the best course of action is protects the quality of life in residential neighborhood it makes this a use that elements the use for permits, however, the cottage operations are required to get a permit from the health department. there has been some concern about the $133 permit foe. when the dwp issues the permit for food operation their signing off on the use for that location. it should be sent to the board for review to us. the referral allows the planning department to make sure it's within a legal dwelling unit. it also allows us to cope the reported that the lease it legally permitted. th

. >> president chiu? >> colleagues, i know many of us have been working on a number of ideas and proposals to address our current affordability crisis with skyrocket evictions and many working families that are at risk of being driven out of san francisco, i want to thank my co-sponsors for the legislation that we are considering today to help tenants due to the ellis act. the ellis act has been interpreted broadly to allow landlords to evict tenants to go out of the rental business, but we have seen a sharp increase in ellis act findings, a number of months back, the eviction of the leaf family in the heart of my district, two seniors and their adult daughter who had been evicted out of their home of 30 year, when i started speaking to the leaf family, i think we all realized that while we could not necessarily stop ellis act evictions at least at the local level, we all started thinking about things we could do to assist our most vulnerable residents from getting pushed out of their homes. this would allow tenants who have occupied their apartments for more than 10 years and have receive
to [inaudible] on-site as they construct market rate housing? >> thank you, president chiu for your question, and certainly i will currently -- currently 20% of what is being built in the city is permanently affordable housing for our low-income households and working class families. as you know, supervisor, over broadway is helping to develop 75 new permanently affordable homes for low-income families, i can report to all of you that the concrete podium is already up on that site. down on ocean street and supervisor yee's district in the shadow of city college, a crane is lifting material that will build 71 new homes for low-income families and transitional age youth. in the mid market area, st. anthony's the building 90 new homes for low-income seniors and in the [inaudible] market area in second and harrison street, the kasanagus project, housing will open in december for homeless youths, these are a few site that is are permanently affordable and currently under construction. yet these projects are not funded by the housing trust fund. however, we could not be able to produce projects li
you, president chiu. i just wanted to thank supervisor avalos for bringing these amendments forward and also for the budget committee working through this with director ris k*en. the amendments makes it -- i'll be supporting the amendments, it makes it clear what these meters are for and like most of my colleagues, if not all, i'm concerned -- i would have been concerned if it were 10 thousand meters and not knowing where these meters would be placed, like some of my colleagues here, i don't want to be surprised one morning and wake up and there's like about a mile of meters in my district, and i also appreciate the flexibility of director ris k*en and all this and working with the board here. i also like supervisor wiener appreciate that we're going to move forward with this by using some of the modern technologies available to make it easier for the users to pay for their meters, so thank you very much. >> supervisor campos? >> thank you, mr. president. i had a quick question, but before i ask that question, i want to thank director ris k*en and his staff and my colleagues and in
and is filed. this matter is now in the andover the board, supervisor farrell? >> thank you, president chiu. and i want to thank dpw for going through this process and for the appellant for coming forward in my district, just more than anything, i think to continue this consistency sake, understand that this is not going to be a winning vote, but i think to me, this is the law of unintended consequences, again, we have someone who's in a more dire economic situation and in particular because this is a six unit tic building being kind of quasi forced to convert where they are no longer eligible for the process, these are exactly the people i believe we need to support. i realize there's not the general sentiment here on the board but i will be supporting the resident from district 2 and so but given that, maybe someone else can make the motion because i know it's not going to be a winner here today. >> okay, is there someone who could make the motion? supervisor breed? >> okay, let me just make sure we're at the right place. this is item number 27, correct? >> it is both item 23 through 25 a
district but i am sure that supervisor chiu and cohen are concerned as well, and something that the city needs to take a closer look at. >> would i like to continue to examine how we identify the funding for these project and i am very interested in the video enforcement because that is not putting officers out on the streets and in the recent visits to korea i was struck that they had 300 cameras that just do parking traffic and traffic parking enforcement throughout the city and while the traffic continues to move slowly t moves and that is something that i am very interested in pursuing and i am interested in congestion pricing and we need to have a discussion on that and last alooking at the tep and seeing how we can expand the lines beyond second street to address all of the residents that we have living in that part of town. but i do appreciate all of the commissioners time and all of the department's time, and i know that everyone believes that this is an incredibly important issue and look forward to continue to work on this with you and of course our residents. >> thank you, mr.
